Bespoke garments are difficult to price until a design and all of the content has been agreed. However we do have a starting price for our fully certified suits which come as one or two piece in leather and jacket / trousers for textiles. All BKS suits use the same generic panel arrangement with the same areas of suit reinforcements inside and the same level of seam construction throughout.
In the beginning back in 1994, BKS suits were all CE Approved to Cambridge Standard - High Performance. This compares to the original LEVEL 3 of the previous European Standard EN 13595 (parts 1-4). All BKS suits will offer the same level of protection whatever final design you settle for. LEVEL 3 (now withdrawn) provided crash protection for construction requirements independently tested to pass 12 seconds on the Cambridge Abraison Machine (the highest performance ever set). In addition BKS suits are currently the only ones to reach the Bennetts High Performance Awards - Diamond Level (5 stars).
Popular models are usually plain in cosmetic design with occasional 2nd and 3rd colour trim just to lift the look a little. The cost goes up with the more technical features that are chosen. Think of BKS as the Savile Row of the motorcycle suit with Rolls Royce build quality.
The cost of a BKS suit includes the following as standard:
Basic panel arrangement with full reinforcements to the knee and shin; full wraparound forearm and elbow; top arm and shoulder; outer thigh and full seat.
Triple stitched seams throughout using Ticket 20 nylon bonded thread.
CE Approved impact protectors at the knee, hip, elbow and shoulder. BKS upgrade available - £50 - £75
Genuine Kevlar Reinforced Stretch Fabric panels in the arms, groin and calf.
Leather accordion stretch panels at the Knees and Waist. Other areas available on upgrade.
Airtex mesh linings (removeable for sanitisation). Other technical fabrics including OUTLAST, available on upgrade.
Most collar, pocket and waistband options are included as part of the basic suit cost.
BKS lettering in up to 8 places (FOC in single colour - but shadow and keyline effects at extra cost).
Aside from the above upgrade options there are a wealth of specifications available that will make your unique BKS suit stand apart from everything you have ever seen before.
We offer special leathers such as Grade 1 Italian crafted KANGAROO skins (of Australian origin) in plain and metallic finishes which improve leather strength yet reduce the weight.
We offer 'space-age' technical linings which actually cool you down and warm you up.
In the 'trim' department we offer patent leather, stingray skin and carbon / ballistic nylon effect leathers....all of which create some fantastic visual enhancements.
Coloured thread on selected sections such as main seam construction can lift a suit nicely.
3-D coloured BKS lettering stitched in contrast thread also helps to pull a design together.
These are just some of the many things on offer - all of which make it difficult to price your suit up until the design is done.
However....we have tried to capture most things as best we can:
